>Tonight’s vote, won by the Government on the back of the support of Anne Widdicombe and the DUP, is another much more important travesty.

It was rightly described by SDLP MP Mark Burdan as a humiliating victory.

I have to say, though, that Nick Clegg’s overtures to the DUP, on the grounds of their supposed commitment to civil liberties, stuck in my throat just a wee bit – has he met Iris Robinson, DUP MP, who, last week, while being questioned about a homophobic attack in Northern Ireland, suggested that homosexuals could be turned around with psychotherapy?
